Where to Find Size Dots on Lululemon

Hello everyone!

Today I want to write a post that might be helpful to people just trying to figure out what size something they have is, whether they purchased it online, or are trying to sell it and can’t recall what size it is.

This post is designed to complement my other post on “How to Spot Fake Lululemon,” since the presence of a size dot can help determine authenticity. However, it is important to state that the lack of a size dot does not mean that an item is fake. Some Lululemon items are made without a size dot. Other times, it has simply fallen off.

I am hoping that people find this guide convenient for when tear-out tags have been removed by the owner, or simply fallen off.

Tank tops:

Tank tops with bras, for the most part, do have size dots! They are hidden in the opening where bra pads would fit in, usually on the left (if you were wearing it) side.

Inside the bra of this No Limits tank, you can see the size dot.

Unfortunately, I have to say that, with bra-less tanks, you’re mostly on your own for these ones. 105F Singlets, Cool Racerbacks, my beloved Sculpt tanks, and many other singlet/ racerback-type tanks do not have size dots. There is a rare exception here or there, but for the most-part, size dots are not present on these items.


Just like the tank tops with bras, bras also have their size dots located inside where the bra pads go.


For any type of swiftly, if it has an indication of size, it will likely not be in the form of a traditional size dot. The size is more likely to be conveyed on the bottom, inside of the garment.

This Swiftly has its bottom hem turned up, and under it we can see a motivational quote, followed by the size, “6”


Wunder Unders, and basically any flat waistband-style pants that Lululemon makes have a size dot in the tiny waistband pocket that is intended to be used for either a credit card or gels.

In the front, tiny, waistband pocket, there is a size dot.


For many Luxtreme crops, there is a size dot in the back waistband zippered pocket. Not all Luxtreme crops have zippered back pockets, but for the ones that do, there is a high degree of probability that the size dot is located inside.

For any other types of pants, including Dance Studio Pants and crops as well as Base Runners, and other tracks pants, generally speaking, the size dot is located in the front left (if you’re wearing them) pocket. Sometimes, it is inside an even tinier pocket inside that pocket.

These Base Runners have their size dot located in the bottom of the left pocket.



Some of the seamless-style pants (think Flow & Go) have their size dot expressed much in the same way as the Swiftlies, in that it is not so much a dot as it is written directly on the fabric in an inconspicuous way.

For many other items’ size dots can be found by searching back zippered pockets, any other type of pocket, or flipping the garment inside out.

Let me know in the comments if this post helps you! Or, if you think I’m missing something and I’ll add it to my article! It’s always great to hear from you!

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Hi! Longtime Lulu addict here! Love your blog, and this post helped me a lot with buying Lulu items on sites like Poshmark. I’m obsessed with In the Flow Crops, I have about 10 pairs now 😂 I just bought a pair off Posh and it is the first pair that doesn’t have the size sewn into the left leg hem (like Swiftly tops). They otherwise appear authentic (I’m somewhat of a seamstress myself so I can scrutinize stitching, seams, and fabric), but they’re definitely not the size they were listed. With ITF Crops, they have these little rolls or bars sewn into the waistband, and I’ve heard mention those can indicate size, but I don’t know what they mean! All my other ITF crops are confirmed size 4 and have 1 bar. These have 3 bars! Any ideas?? Thanks!!


    1. Hi there, thank you so much for the compliment on my blog! I love to write and am constantly working on new projects/ posts. I had not heard about the bars indicating size. I’m sorry that the size is not indicated on the crops themselves. You can always submit a claim. Like eBay, Poshmark often takes the buyer’s side in disputes. I would also recommend contacting Lulu Customer service to ask- they do live chat now too! I hope you find an answer!
